Note: for today’s music article, we’ve changed the feature name to try and see if it’ll be less vague and bring in more readers. Consider it an experiment.
If any game series exemplifies the use of a larger-than-life orchestral soundtrack, it’s God of War. Although most players remember its signature theme most fondly, there are a lot of other great compositions for the series as well, and the upcoming prequel God of War: Ascension would be remiss not to continue this trend.
Admittedly, we can’t find the exact title for today’s track, but we’ll call it “Cyclops of the Garite” due to its name on Youtube. In this piece, there’s heavy use of low, tribal-like drums and a choir of both male and female vocals. It really does sound barbaric and primal, which all the best considering, from the title, that it will accompany a battle with a hulking, primitively brutal cyclops. Listen to the track below and let us know what you think!
The track was composed by series newcomer Tyler Bates, who has also composed the soundtracks for games such as Transformers: War For Cybertron, Army of Two: The 40th Day and Watchmen: The End Is Nigh. You can check out his site here.
